what are they doing to each other? don't do it! there's some chance this might not be the u.s. congress. if it was in the house of representatives, i guess they'd be going house. all right. that happened in the ukraine. not only did i enjoy that fight people climbing on one another to get into the fight i loved the quote afterwards: >> cenk: oh, i see. they're worse off than we are. let's bring in michael shure to talk about boehner and how this nonsense is shaping up. good to see you. >> i think i have a little ukrainian in me, too. >> cenk: it's cool, it's cool, man. let's start with boehner. today he came out and gave the same stonewall answer that he always does, saying hey i want low taxes for the top 2%, i don't want to raise their taxes at all. what's amazing is how similar his language is to the same things he said back in 1993 dealing with president clinton. watch that. >> we republicans are rely gated to the sidelines even though we have a solid plan ready to go to reduce the deficit a plan with no tax increases and true cuts in government spending. >> the president still has
, to stop clean energy policies in the u.s., and that is the basis of a deadlock here in doha. so let's take it to the next question: what can be done then in washington to minimize the power of these incredibly wealthy men? >> well i mean, as you know washington is kind of -- has kind of become formalized legalized corruption. this is something that's got to start outside of washington. it already is. what we see is a groundswell of organized labor, communities of color, of environmental organizations, not just climate groups, are following the money and see that it's all leaveding to the kochs. they are not only the biggest source of financing for attacking collective bargaining rights, voter rights clean air, healthcare, but, as you know they bundled, you know, almost a billion dollars with their other conservative allies for the 2012 e elections. >> let's talk about what's going on doha as these talks wind doubt. a lot of us have been frustrated watching knowing that the united states is not leading. what has been accomplished? and what is preventing the
that it would be difficult to ratify an u.n. treaty that is based on existing u.s. law. but then again you might not have met the modern republican party where ideological zealots rule. on july 26 1990, president george bush sr. signed the americans with disabilities act. the bill passed the house and the senate with only 34 legislate34legislators total opposing it. yet today 38 republican senators voted no on the u.n. treaty that would extend the ada to the rest of the world. inclusion six who had voted yay on the bill in 19 ott. this was sufficient to block it. the treaty was adopted by the united nations six years ago and has since been ratified by 126 countries, just not the united states. even a last-minute appeal by former senator bob dole himself a disabled veteran, as well as every major veterans group and even the chamber of commerce could not sway senate republicans. but this is what has become of the republican party. a party whose views often dissend to the lowest common denominator and defined by paranoid fears of the u.n. that are devoid of any fact whatsoever. so one could underst
people in the u.s. and caused billions of dollars of damage. unless you live in one of the affected areas you probably think things are back to norm. but that's because the media is barely cleaning up the cleanup efforts. in new york city, they're living in third world conditions, raw sewage continues to flow into water ways. thousands still have no power and direct subway service is not expected to return into the middle of next year. >> we were up to five feet of water. it was not water but it was all cesspool so it was sewage water. >> how much can a body tank. >> blankets, two socks three sweaters and gloves. >> they have got garbage they're cleaning in other areas and putting it on the beach here, yet we have still have garbage here. >> it's the way life is. >> jennifer: thousands of volunteers have flocked to the rockaways to help with the cleanup efforts tonight coming from new york, dr. sabaya, welcome to the war room. >> i'm having difficulty hearing you. >> jennifer: i can hear you, just a little bit faint. >> a little bit faint. hopefully they can turn up your microphone becaus
already put out twice as many gasses as the u.s. in 2012. while our emissions are going down, china is growing at 10% of the year. if all of this was to cease to exist, china would make up for that in three and a half years. >> it doesn't matter what we do here. if we set an example by spending money and china can't afford to follow that example and we can't afford to subsidize that example, then that example is not much good. we need something that can be done in china. then we would both believe any solution has to be focused on the developing world because that is where--i'm not putting blame on anybody. they have every right in my mind to develop. i would love to see them develop. i would like to see them become wealthy, but we must recognize that along the track they're going in which they're burning primarily coal for their energy, this is going to be the source of the carbon dioxide that will lead to what i consider to be excessive global warming in the next few years. >> so coal is the core of the problem from your perspective. we're going through a giga watt of coal burning
the u.s. not necessarily people but the education for producing. >> now, you see, i disagree with that. the skills are here americans can make these products. they can make them as good and better earn anybody in the entire world. we have a great skilled workforce. if they are not teaching some of those skills here, that's easy to fix. and way back in the days when i used to work with jerry brown, we talked about finding the skills that companies need for their special products, you know, computers or iphones or wind turbins or solar panels or whatever and making sure to be teaching those skills in our community colleges and vocational schools. you have to marry the two. but clearly, with that, americans can certainly do those jobs. but that's just one little point of difference here i think this is great news. let us know what you think about it 866-55-press. i will be damn honest with you. as a liberal and saz a progressive, i have been really feeling guilty about all of my apple stuff. i bought two ipads at christmas last year, one for each of our s

, the treasury department has options. there is a constitutional option. no one believes that the u.s. government is going to default on its debt and stop paying interest on its bond. even if it did things are so bad throughout thest the rest of the world it would not cause people to dump our treasury securities. i don't think there is that much continuing that could be done even if we go down that road again. >> eliot: they have no place else to put their money. are they going to buy greek debt and declare a default? john boehner used that card. it failed, he got egg on his face and we were downgraded. all the negative things that people said would happen didn't happen and in fact just the opposite. but my advise advice would be to put your seat belt and this this is one of these budgie jump moments you just ride it: brian let me come back to you. the difference where the white house is and john boehner is not that great in the context of a ten-year time frame. what are we fighting over? >> we're fighting over where to take that money from and when to do it. everything specific comes up out of

then we got regulation in china. in 1911 in the u.s. we had the triangle shirt waist fire that led to deaths and that wound up giving us more regulations. sometimes regulation saves lives. remember that the next time you see the anti-regulatory fever that you see so many other places on television. all right let's bring in teresa hahn the director of a labor rights organization, and they were the ones conducting investigations of working conditions in factories around the globe. teresa, do you have a sense of when walmart said those are too expensive, we can't do it. how true or untrue is that relative to their cost? is it really that would be prohibitively expensive or a regular course of business? >> it's something that walmart absolutely has the financial ability to do and could do it for a relatively small part of their overall finances. it's a matter of political will in walmart and the companies are not willing to put forward to them what is a relatively small amount of money that would ultimately save the lives of hundreds if not thousands of their workers for their supplier
was levi strauss. now, 140 years later 450 million pairs of jeans are sold every year in the u.s. alone. now, you would think with that volume, the manufacturing process would be totally mechanized but actually a lot of it is still done by hand. a typical pair of jeans is made from 15 individual pieces, someone has to oversee cutting all of those pieces and sew them together and as you can see in this discovery channel documentary, the seams get ironed out flat then the zipper and the rivets are attached and finally, because who wants new-looking jeans they get distressed. workers put them on giant rubber legs that get blown up like balloons and then they give some rough treatment to them so they really look like they came out of a california mine. now, that discovery channel documentary might show satisfied workers happily doing their jobs but the truth is that kind of work is really hard. it requires a lot of tough manual labor. and for that, american companies have gone overseas and specifically to bangladesh. that c
